12 cylinders, 11,000rpm: Aston Martin’s new engine is a monster

Ars Technica - 15 min 36 sec ago

Aston Martin

The world of ultra-high-performance cars is an odd one. Stratospheric prices and tiny production runs mean few will ever see one on the move; fewer still experience one from the driver's seat. The relentless march of progress pushes their specs further and further to the edge; 400hp might have seemed more than you'd ever need in the 1970s but would now be barely adequate in a sporting sedan. And they often act as harbingers for impending global catastrophe—just look at the timing of the Ferrari Daytona or McLaren F1.

In the current era, we had to find a new term to even describe these four-wheeled exotics. Calling them supercars no longer sufficed, so now we have the hypercar. A few years ago, McLaren, Ferrari, and Porsche kicked things off with a trio of hybrids, each costing more than a million dollars and each nearing 1,000hp.

Amazon Web Services aims to colonize your network with Outpost

If you want to know what Amazon's big plans are for Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the most reliable tells is to watch where Microsoft and Google cloud services are gaining traction. At last year's annual Amazon re:Invent technical conference, the big news for cloud customers was Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), a managed container service based on industry-leading Kubernetes—an open source platform championed by Google. And this last year, at last week's re:Invent 2018, Amazon announced its counter to Microsoft's Azure Stack with a new on-premises offering of its own.

Amazon Outposts, a service scheduled to become available in the second half of 2019, will allow customers to provision physical racks of Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers and have them shipped to their own data centers. The racks will be configured with the same servers that Amazon runs in its AWS data centers; once installed, the racks will connect back to the AWS mothership over the Internet and then can be configured with storage services and virtual machines through Amazon's AWS Management Console. And just as with services hosted in Amazon's own data centers, customers won't own these racks—they'll rent them. The costs and connectivity requirements associated with Outpost have yet to be determined.

Living on the edge

Using Outpost's "edge computing" model has some potential benefits for companies transitioning to the cloud or with large existing hybrid cloud deployments mixing on-site and cloud resources. In his re:Invent keynote, AWS CEO Andy Jassy said that consistency in operations was the primary motivation for Outpost, since customers will be able to use the same Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and control pane with Outposts that they currently use with AWS. But Outpost also guarantees on-demand access to the virtual machines and storage on these systems, whereas in normal AWS cloud usage, customers would have to reserve those services in advance to guarantee on-demand availability. Additionally, customers may be able to eventually run many AWS cloud services locally in their own data center—services that they might currently rely on third-party software for because of performance or security concerns related to using AWS.

Epic opens Fortnite’s cross-platform services for free to other devs

Ars Technica - 46 min 16 sec ago

Enlarge / Players from seven different gaming platforms could be in this shot, and in your game, too!

Part of the massive success of Fortnite has been the ability for hundreds of millions of players to join with each other across myriad computer, mobile, and console platforms. Now, Epic is laying out a roadmap to share that cross-platform architecture with other developers as part of a free SDK that will be rolled out next year.

Epic says its newly announced Online Services SDK will offer "cross-platform login, friends, presence, profile, and entitlements" across PC, Mac, iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch "to the full extent each platform allows per-title." The service is planned for launch on PC sometime in the second or third quarter of 2019, with support for other platforms planned "throughout 2019."

A roadmap announced today laid out the following schedule for features to be added to the free SDK:
